I am so excited to announce that, as of next week, I will be starting my new position as a Content Developer at Microsoft! I have had an incredible year and a half as a Technical Evangelist, working with talented people to bring Microsoft’s technologies out to thousands of developers, professional and aspiring, across the world. As my internship comes to an end, I am thrilled to make this transition to a full time employee at Microsoft, reporting directly to a great manager in Redmond, Washington. In my new role I will be working in LeX, Microsoft’s Learning Experience, the team behind developing deep technical training for Microsoft technologies.
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with the Developer Experience and Evangelism team at Microsoft Canada during my internships. Over the last year and a half this team has had such a positive impact on my life, and has really been there for me through some tough times. I’ve found mentors, friends, workout buddies, teachers and more, and I feel so fortunate to have learned and laughed with this family of incredible people.
I’ve always recognized the importance of choosing a company that feels right, that you wholeheartedly believe in, and that you can be proud to build a career at; and for me, Microsoft is absolutely that place. I am honoured to be accepting this position while I am still in school, and over the next year I will be working remotely from Halifax, Nova Scotia as I finish my degree at Dalhousie University. It will be quite an adventure to work on the west coast while living on the east coast, and you can be sure I’ll continue writing about my experiences here on Trendy Techie!
Thank you to all of you who have supported me during my adventures and who have been with me since the beginning – I hope you continue to share these experiences with me as I open this new chapter of my career.
